sherku: metaphor

when thoughts collide
I speak in
All the dots
One, two, three

This was incorrectly mentioned in one of my podcasts. At the time I recorded, I added a couple of words, without having the original text in front of me.

one guitar
two violins
three sisters
their voices
take us to

If we only
go so far

snowy drifts
receding waves

sherku: westward

racing west
the sunset
paints glory
in patches
changing with
each long curve

#dpf16 #140poets

sherku: seamless

good thing these
are seamless
rails can
only imagine
what the old
times were

sherku: two step

his mind is still
working to fix
things which these
days he can
only take apart

sherku: this hand

this hand once
did fine needle
point, now this
hand trembles
trying to
hold the frame

sherku: red weather

the photo op 
revealed her 
boots matched her 
shoulder bag 
and finger nails

#140poets #boston

Composed while walking through Boston to the train station, I observed a couple of visitors stop for a photo. As she raised her phone for the photo, the red on her nails stuck out and lined up with her shoulder bag and boots.

sherku: Mother's back

Hood upon
My head I
Look down when
I walk careful
Not to step
On a crack

Drafted on the walk to the office from South Station and rediscovered in Evernote tonight

if work life  
balance is 
still time to 
lay down and make 
snow angels

Bent to refill 
my glass saw 
in passing 
as young as 
he was then 
he's not now

My love for
You is secure
